Sophia Hortin is from Fisher, Illinois which is located in Champaign County. She was a member of the Fisher FFA Chapter, and she was advised by her agriculture teachers Miss Jennifer Boberg and Mrs. Kara Barling. Her parents are Mark & Shanna Hortin of Fisher, Illinois.
Sophia kept SAEs in Swine Production Entrepreneurship and Diversified Crop Production Placement. In her Swine record book she raised market hogs throughout the year and sold them to people within her community who wanted to purchase high quality, locally raised pork. In her Diversified Crop Production record book Sophia worked alongside her dad on their family grain production farm. Her favorite job from that record book is driving the grain truck.
Sophia aspires to become an agriculture teacher and FFA advisor in her future. After her year of service, Sophia will attend the University of Illinois to attain a degree in Agricultural Leadership & Science Education to reach this goal.
